Garden Greenhouse Card with Slight Adaptation

I knew that it was going to be a real mess trying to have 14 stampers die cut the greenhouse frame and then clean up all the little pieces at our semi-monthly community center class, so I decided that we would stamp the framework of the greenhouse and then stamp the greenery and flowers.  It was a much smoother process for a large group of stampers sharing one set of supplies.

This Happy Birthday greeting is from the Flowing Flowers stamp set…..’fussy’ cut out with Paper Snips, sponged around the edges using Garden Green ink and then mounted to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

First we stamped the frame of the greenhouse using Smoky Slate classic ink.  (I forgot to add this ink to the list of supplies below!) Then we stamped the greenery using Garden Green ink, placing the bottom of the stems at the bottom of the greenhouse.  That was followed by stamping the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Positively Pink and Fresh Freesia inks.  The greeting of choice (I’ve used four different greetings in today’s cards) was stamped using Garden Green ink on scraps of Basic White card stock.  I had strips of Basic White card stock left over from cutting layers for cards so all I had to do was stamp my greeting and then trim off the ends and attach it to the card

This greeting is also from the Garden Greenhouse stamp set.  It’s tucked into the Garden Green die cut branch and finally attached to the card front using “green glue”, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and attached directly to the card using ‘green glue’.

TIP:  Here’s a quick and easy way to cut a “flag” at each end of the greeting:

How to cut a 'flagged' label
Draw a line in the center of the strip of card stock (reverse side) as deep/long as you want your ‘flag’ to be.

 

How to cut a 'flagged' label
Use Paper Snips to cut along that real or imaginary line.  Try to make that center line the same length at both ends.

 

How to cut a 'flagged' label
Cut from one corner to the end of the center snip.

 

How to cut a 'flagged' label
Repeat that snip from the other corner.

Finally, repeat at the other end. You can make that initial center cut as long or short as you want. The cut in this sample is rather long and I normally would make that initial cut a bit shorter.

 

Back to the cards…….A  sweet little Brushed Brass Butterfly was attached to each card somewhere.  Can you find them?

Isn’t this just such a fresh card?  It makes me want to construct a little greenhouse in my back yard.  No, that will never happen so I’ll just make cute cards.
